Just a Note–MFTWSC #161


Hey, there! It’s Wednesday noon so it must be time for this week’s
MFTWSC! Are you ready? Here’s this week’s sketch. All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog as well as in the weekly newsletter. The Design Team will be on hand to provide plenty of inspiration to get you started.


I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base and then went to my stamped “patterned paper” stash to see what I could use. I found a piece of Blu Raspberry card stock stamped with LJD Textile Backgrounds and Blu Raspberry ink, an already cut Pierced Traditional Tag STAX Die-namics stamped with Black Licorice ink on Sweet Tooth card stock and Sheet Music Background, and a piece of Striped Backgrounds out of which I cut a Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics element. I cut a Delicate Doilies Die-namics from Black Licorice card stock and some LJD Wildflower Die-namics from Sweet Tooth card stock. I stamped them with LJD Peaceful Wildflowers with Sour Apple ink, Wild Cherry ink, Bubblegum ink, Orange Fizz ink, and Lemon Drop ink and adhered them to the music-stamped tag. I tied around some black hemp cord and tied on a tiny Traditional Tags STAX Die-namics with the sentiment, also from LJD Peaceful Wildflowers.

Another sentiment from that set is stamped on the inside.


And that’s it! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Rose Hello–CTD #277


Are you ready for another Color Throwdown? Broni has a GORGEOUS palette for us this week—so soft and pretty based on her inspiration piece.

swatch 277

I started off with a Kraft card stock base, then added a strip of patterned paper that I made using Sno Cone card stock, Sno Cone ink, and Striped Backgrounds. Then I embossed a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock with MPD Moroccan Stars stencil and popped it up on foam. I cut out some roses using MPD Rose Bouquet Die-namics and stamped them with using MPD Blooming Roses in Bubblegum ink first, then added the second layer with Regal Rose ink. The leaves were stamped with Sno Cone ink. I stamped the sentiment, from MPD Contemporary Roses, on a strip of Sweet Tooth card stock with Steel Gray ink and popped it up on foam to finish it off.

On the inside is a sentiment from Get Well Wishes.


And that’s it from me! Remember, you do not have to have the exact colors to play the

Thanks–SSSC #204


Hi, everyone, and welcome to this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Karen has a super fun sketch for us this week—hope to see lots of you playing along with us!

I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base, then popped up a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock matted with Black Licorice card stock. The vertical strips were stamped with images from Washi Patterns and More Washi Patterns and Berrylicious ink, Black Licorice ink, and Lemon Drop ink. The sentiment images are all from Sending Thanks and were stamped on a LJD Ticket Note Die-namics die cut then popped up on foam. some enamel dots finish it off.

Another sentiment from the set is on the inside.


And that’s it! Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for you today:
